This book provides useful practical advice towards the achievement of an optimum result in structural steelwork and promotes a good general appreciation of the components that make up the cost of the fabricated steel, and of how decisions made at the design state can influence these costs.
Increasingly the viability of a building project depends on critical financial considerations. It is important therefore, for designers to have a good general appreciation of the components that make up the cost of the fabricated steel, and of how decisions made at the design state can influence these costs.
This edition takes into account current fabrication practices and material/labour relationships, both of which have changed markedly since the last edition of this publication.
It again substantially adopts the rationalised approach to the costing of fabricated steelwork by using a cost per metre for sections and a cost per square metre for plates, depending on the size, in lieu of cost per tonne. Costings given in this publication are indicative only and should not be used as absolute costs.
